Off the beaten track, West Michigan software firm is adding jobs and growing

Nestled near a cornfield off of M-45 is one of the faster growing, employee-centric software development firms in West Michigan.  

BizStream, a 26-person web and software development company located in Allendale, Michigan, is on the grow. It has recently announced the addition of nine new team members including Budd Wright, Nick Beukema, Dustin Christians, Aaron Coville, Ansel Pineiro, Kevin Stachura, Blair Compston, Dave Valko and Amanda Hodges and has open positions remaining.

BizStream, founded in 2001, builds web, online marketing and software solutions for local, regional, national and international companies. The firm specializes in ASP.NET, SQL Server, Kentico CMS, Kentico EMS, and other content management systems.

Michelle Schmidt, office manager, acknowledges the extreme competition for software talent in West Michigan, but says BizStream is a very attractive company that features competitive wages and benefits and has an appealing culture: "We have fun, work hard and really appreciate the employees." She says the semi-rural location can be a surprise to individuals checking out BizStream, "but once they see the building and the culture they really dig it."

Schmidt says the firm is also committed to spreading the joy of software development and points to the summer's BizStream Academy, a free summer program for individuals interested in learning to code.
